Also known commonly as cinnamon cassia, Chinese cassia, or cassia bark comes from the Lauraceae plant family.
Cinnamon Sticks are commonly used in potpourri, distilled for essential oils, and as an herbal remedy. The aromatic nature of the item has made it a popular item for centuries, and now it’s commonly used for a variety of aromatherapy purposes. The scent of the cinnamon stick is often used to stimulate the senses, providing a positive and uplifting mood when inhaled as well as a traditional medicinal spice.
The sticks are large, smooth and a deep brown coloring, while the Cassia Vera variety can be broken, cracked and cleaned. This variety is often used in tinctures, and potpourri due to their highly aromatic nature. The sticks are a great substitution to those who don’t like working directly with the oils.
The dried botanicals are great for making sachets that can be placed around the house, in drawers or commonly ignored household areas (think cinnamon moth balls). The sachets are also great to hang near the door, window or even throughout your car to keep insects at bay.
You can also add them to a bowl as a potpourri, either by themselves or with other dried botanicals (Note they are most aromatic when placed in sunny/warm locations). They are great for mixing into your soap making to add a gentle exfoliate to your final product. The cinnamon is soothing and great for people with sensitive skin.
Whatever your use, dried botanicals are fantastic for people looking for an all-natural way to scent their homemade goodies. They also add a wonderful coloring and texture to those soaps and bath and body products.
Please note always recommend checking with a physician before using herbal products, in particular if you are pregnant, nursing or using other medications.
Very disappointed with the quality. Bought these in lieu of great value brand from my usual provider that was out of stock. basically will just throw these in the trash.
We use a lot of cinnamon in our home. It is much more affordable to order in the quantities that Bulk Apothecary carries.
The sticks came packaged in bags of twenty or so in excellent condition, great length. The only thing I wish is that they had more scent.
I needed many cinnamon sticks for Christmas crafts & these worked out wonderfully for this purpose. These are nice quality. If I got some of them at a grocery store there wouldn't be enough in just 1 container, so I ordered these & got more than enough at a lower cost (even with shipping fee) than buying from a grocer & that's good value. I would certainly buy from here again, as they also offer them in different lengths.
These are exactly what I needed!
Like the sturdy resealable bag. 6" is perfect for boiling; cut the smaller ones in half for kitchen use. These thick ones are perfect for steaming and grating. Perfect condition. Will buy again, gift, share.
Great product , shipped quick .
So happy with the service and product. Would recommend this company to anyone who likes to buy in bulk.
Fast delivery and very good quality...used them as sticks to grill fruits in a new recipe
